Last weekend, we had had friends over for a casual summer get together. Sometimes the easy backyard barbecues are the best kind of party.
I was really looking forward to seeing everyone and enjoying the party myself, so I went with a really easy menu that didn't keep me in the kitchen all night.
We started with some store bought help - pre-cut carrot and celery sticks with french onion dip. My menu was a little heavy, so some fresh veggies are always nice!
I made two types of wings: my old faithful, Asian Sticky Wings, and a new experiment, Sriracha Lime wings, which turned out delicious (recipe coming soon!). I timed the wings so they were ready about 10 minutes before everyone arrived. Cleanup was easy since I lined the baking sheets with tin foil.
For a side, I went with store bought potato chips (original and cheddar and sour cream).
Now for the main event - homemade surfer dogs! Oh. My. Gosh. I hate to toot my own horn, but these bad boys were off the charts. Not only were they delicious, but SO easy to prepare. I cooked
the bacon a few hours before the party, so literally all I had to do was make the cheese sauce while Mike grilled the hot dogs.
Roscoe, of course, donned his formalwear for the event.
We rounded off the evening with a game of Cards Against Humanity - so fun!
Stay tuned for my Surfer Dog and Sriracha Wing recipes!
